Hard disk controllers, list of vendors

Here you can find a list of Hard disk controllers vendors and download necessary drivers straight away. With a view to find a required driver out of 1552409 items in our database inventory, select an appropriate vendor of Hard disk controllers from the list of 45 available in this section.

DevID : : Hard disk controllers

The hard drive controller is a complex device, a minicomputer with its own processor, a control chip, RAM and ROM, TV recording and reading data, the interface module and the positioning system. It usually presents one or two microchips (in physical form), soldered on the Board, and implementation converting operations in the data flow.

Many modern drives are characterized by a variety of modes, including DMA2, ultra DMA and PIO. In order to take advantage of these modes, it is recommended that you download driver for hard disk controllers. Mode DMA (Direct Memory Access) is useful because it allows you to significantly offload the CPU of the PC during data exchange operations; wherein the controller is in direct connection with the computer interface. In contrast to DMAmode PIO uses the CPU when transferring data through the interface; however, the controller has direct access to RAM.

Sometimes the OS cannot recognize the hard disk controller, even when the installed drivers. The reason for this can be the following:

  • mechanical damages. When strikes or falls the elements of the seal can be deformed. Deformation most often exposed to the interface or contact at the site of attachment circuits. When a minor degree of damage, the device can be repaired, but the life of the elements is greatly reduced. It is also worth considering the possibility of factory defects of the individual elements;
  • electrical damage. The performance of PC hardware is largely dependent on the stability of the voltage petenera in the system. In case of excess, spikes or sharp cut-off voltage and electrostatic discharge, the fuses of the power supply circuit, power circuits or in the worst case, the controller CPU can burn out. Often the fuses are not repairable and require replacement;
  • outdated driver hard disk controllers. When you upgrade the hardware of the computer (or some components) of a previously installed program requires updates to install the relationship with the OS.
